This large petrol station is advantageously located on one of Nicosia’s busiest avenues. It has a dual access, one from the avenue and one from a road in the back. The access from the avenue is convenient for clients going towards Nicosia centre, while the rear access is convenient for clients going in both directions. Therefore, the station captures a wide variety of daily commuters as well as regulars who live in the area.
In addition, the area serviced by the road in the back of the station is developing rapidly, with residential and office buildings as well as a private college being built. This location offers the best of both worlds: a heavy and steady flow of traffic on the avenue and an ever-increasing traffic on the back road which provides excellent and real growth prospects. Another possibility is to lease an empty plot next to the station to offer a combination of day-parking, car wash plus a small cafeteria.
The land lease (which is paid by the Oil Company) has another 18 years and is renewable.
